Some trying to push country towards war again - PM

Some parties are deliberately making an effort to push the country towards a war again. We will take all possible steps to prevent this sinister move, Prime Minister Ratnasiri Wickramanayaka said.

Protecting Motherland

* More UNPers pledge support to President

* Country cannot be betrayed for personal goals

* Lanka must be protected from conspirators

He was addressing a largely attended meeting at Waboda in support of President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s victory. This had been organized by Mahara SLFP organizer and Transport Minister Lasantha Alagiyawanna.

“Since UNP has become a desert, more and more members despite their political divergences, are joining President Rajapaksa to play a long innings,” he said.

All segments are enthusiastically coming forward to help in the victory of President Rajapaksa to safeguard the Motherland which was protected by the war heroes with much sacrifices. “We cannot betray the country for our personal goals,” he said.

“The TNA, prior to this, forwarded their conditions to the President and he rejected them since we cannot divide this country and wage a war again. We do believe that same conditions might have been forwarded to Fonseka. A positive response had been given by him and his supporting parties are ignoring the danger behind these conditions,” the Prime Minister said. The Premier requested from the parties involved with this pact to reveal the conditions that were agreed to.

“If TNA leader Sambandan is unable to reveal them, at least Fonseka could come forward to tell us what they are. The voters have a right to know them,” he said.

“The TNA at the press conference said there were foreign envoys who were shown this agreement. If that is true, I request the Foreign Minister to take a decision regarding this. No foreigner has a right to interfere in our internal affairs,” the Prime Minister said.

“We must protect this little island from conspirators. We can achieve this through a macro-economic development. This development must be compatible with our cultural values. A righteous society is what we expect,” he said.
